Severe Hormone Imbalance

2 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am just plain scared, frustrated and numb. I need to find a doctor(s) to manage this thing. I interviewed one last summer and he told me straight out that I will need my thyroid medicine for life plus he suspected Addison's and I was already diagnosed Gluten/Casein sensitive and my female hormones are out of whack. Besides the magnitude of this type of diagnosis...his bedside manner literally gave me anxiety. But he does take our insurance, he is 45 minutes away and he embraces more of an Integrative Medicine approach than many of the others.

I am quite concerned that due to his increased age, his arrogance and my personality that it might not be the right mix but I don't know what else to do. I've called several doctors and they are too traditional. My current endocrinologist (comes with significant credentials and seems to know the thyroid well) but seems to think (only by looking at me) that I don't have Addison's.

I have been using glandulars and high doses of B5, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Calcium etc. I have more energy than I did before this regime. Yet I still must manage all of this and do it right!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any help or information would be greatly appreciated. :)

Hello, Tammy. I am very sorry to hear about all that you are going through. I'm sure that's not a whole lot of fun for you, is it.

Undoubtedly, I would go with the first doctor. If you can hold onto anyone like that, it would come as an extremely valuable asset for you, in my opinion. Consider what he has done for you that the others have not, afterall. Regardless of his disposition, that is the individual I would choose in a heartbeat. Sounds as if he's one of the rare ones that actually still cares about the goodwill of his patients, etc.

Based on what you have to say, it definitely sounds as if he would get you the most help.

Good luck.

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
